Questions on LRPs and container networking


1.) After the auctioneer declares a winner for an auction, what does it tell the rep that causes it to start doing the work? For example, does it give it some kind of identifier that enables it to look up the appropriate droplet in the blobstore?

2.) Does every cell that hosts application containers have its own instance of Garden? When work is ready to be done by a cell, is it the rep which tells Garden to make a container with a given droplet? (Are a cell's own CPU, disk, and memory resources consumed during the process of building a container?)

3.) After a cell has finished making a container, what happens to make that container routable from the public Internet? What CF and cell components does the request pass through or get inspected by before it reaches the container?

4.) When a container dies, what stops the load balancer and/or router from continuing to route requests to it? If a container is merely deadlocked in some way but the process is still alive (just not responding), does the answer change?
